New England winters can make enjoying a meal from a food truck challenging. Green Bean Mobile Cafe owner Jaime Andrews, 34, has a solution. On weekdays, the solar-powered truck serves breakfast near Boston’s Copley Square. On Sundays, Andrews parks the truck outside KO at the Shipyard in East Boston, “just a few hundred yards,” she says, from the apartment she shares with truck manager Geoff Escott, 30. Thanks to KO’s hospitality, Green Bean customers can enjoy breakfast in the warmth of the restaurant’s cozy dining room. Customize traditional early morning sandwiches ($3.75 to $5.25) with avocado, roasted peppers, and sriracha. Or try the Dirty Pig ($5.15), which is bacon and chocolate between two waffles. Current muffins ($2.80) include apple pie and raspberry and dark chocolate chip. The truck’s organic, fair-trade coffee ($2 hot, $2.25 iced) is a specialty roast from Dean’s Beans in central Massachusetts. So if it’s Sunday, grab a cup and head inside for a snug harbor. Green Bean Mobile Cafe is parked on Stuart Street at Trinity Place, Boston, Mon-Fri, 6:30-10 a.m.; and at KO at the Shipyard, 256 Marginal St., Building 16, East Boston, Sundays 9 a.m.-noon, or go to
